We do not deliver care directly, but work with a network of home care providers to raise the quality and capacity standards of domiciliary care in northern and mid Devon.

Devon Cares is underpinned by NHS values, acting as a bridge between health and social care, enabling better health outcomes for service users and addressing many of the demand problems facing the wider health system in Devon.

Northern Devon Healthcare NDHT Trust understands this type of service: we deliver consistent and high quality community health and social care services to 7000 people in their own homes across most of Devon. Our vision is to deliver high quality care which supports people to live healthy and independent lives in their own homes.
